Hello,



If a consumer where to purchase a new VHF low & hi only TV antenna today (Nov.16, 2012),



What is the best long range VHF channel 2 to 13 TV antenna?



This is in reference to the REAL channels.



WMDE will be lauching soon with real channel 5.



20 TV stations are using real channel 2



20 TV stations are using real channel 3.



27 TV stations are using real channel 4.



31 TV stations are using real channel 5.



64 TV stations are using real channel 6.



Thank you,

mike

This is about the only decent VHF only antenna I could find.

Stark Electronics has some others but you would have to use 2 antennas.

Blonder Tongue has some but there really expensive because there geared

toward commercial systems.

If you can find an used Channel Master VHF only antenna in good shape,

those were really good antennas.

Depending on the locations use a VHF-Low (2-6) and a VHF-HIgh (7-13)with a diplexer might the best solution. These are both YAGI designs.A 10+ element yagi can have more gain than LPDAs. .

for a few examples see:www.weisd.com/test/WEISD_TBL_list.php?a=integrated&ctlSearchFor=Television+Antennas
